Happy Thursday, 'Nova Nation! So, last night stunk. I don't remember the last time I was that disappointed after a 23-point victory, but there was next to nothing good about that performance. As I said in the gamethread, hopefully this forces the team to refocus before Saturday's trip to Hawk Hill, because even though Temple beat St. Joe's (PA) last night, they will be up for us.
If we play like we did against Penn, we won't win.
And now, the "news."
